Kicking Cancer’s Ass: The Lime Project

Posted by on Thursday, November 9th, 2006

I was just packing to head out for the Knitter’s Review Retreat (not to rub it in, but, well, I’m a gonna rub it in just a tiny bit.  The awesomeness of finally getting to go to this retreat!), when I got an email from my dear friend Jeanne that just made me well up.

In case you’re newish here, I freaking hate cancer. I want to corner it in a dark alley and kick it’s ever-hating ass.  Seriously really really hate cancer.

And also, my Celty-girl friends have been known to make a calendar or two in our day and in our way.  Soft spot for indie calendars, here.  There’s one in the works now, but that is not our subject today.

Our subject is the Lime Project.  In short, a knitter and potter named Heather was diagnosed last year with Hodgkins.  She is fighting it, and she’s winning, but the medical bills are destroying her financially.  So her friends got together to make a cheesecake calendar (the nudie kind, not the foodie kind) and sell copies to help Heather out.  All proceeds go straight to Heather.  If you’re not into owning a copy of the calendar, you can make straight-up donations.

So consider giving Heather a hand, won’t you?

    i thought you’d get a kick out of the fact that one of the kids in my sons’ school’s knitting club is named lanea. she thought that someone else having her name was cool too (she’s an 8th grader, lol)

    i’ll be heading over to heather’s shortly, myself
